Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti is struggling to run Crysis Remastered above 60 FPS on 1080p resolution and Very High settings. As revealed in Crytek's recent stream, the game was running at an average of 38 FPS, which does not seem ideal at all.
We remember the original Crysis as one of the most demanding games of all time and it looks like the upcoming Crysis Remastered version will also require a lot of GPU power. As you may know, Crytek listed mid-tier GPUs, GTX 1660 Ti and AMD Radeon Vega 56 under recommended PC specs, suggesting that the majority of players will get to enjoy the game on highest settings.
However, that might not be the case. In a recent live stream where Crytek devs showcased Crysis Remastered gameplay on a high-end PC, we noticed that the performance on Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti is not quite what you would expect from such a powerful GPU.
Crysis Remastered ran at an average of 38 FPS on Very High settings and 1080p resolution. You may remember that Crytek have a special "Can it Run Crysis?" setting for PC players but this was not it. 2080 Ti was running standard Very High settings which means the highest possible settings in Can it Run Crysis? will be a no-go for 2080 Ti users.
If this GPU is not capable of running the game at higher frame-rate at 1080p, then we wonder if the latest RTX 3000 series will manage to offer acceptable framerate. As things stand, it looks like a maxed-out Crysis Remastered will be available only to those with super expensive RTX 3090 GPUs.
Of course, this is just speculation at the moment since we do not have the benchmarks just yet and should wait for more data before jumping to any conclusions. That being said, the numbers above certainly do not look good for those who were hoping to run Crysis Remastered maxed out at 60 FPS.
